Same problem (fmiller1@cox.net). I have a PS/2 keyboard (tried 2 different
keyboards) that gives the same problem.  It works thru the CD tests, then
nothing. The motherboard is a Abit KT7.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-29 04:51:55 UTC
Does it work in the second stage if you boot with 'linux text'?

Comment 3 av3 2002-12-29 07:55:25 UTC
I have tried several installation methods, including 'linux text', none of them
gave me a working AT keyboard.

Comment 4 Frank Miller 2002-12-30 02:39:32 UTC
Same result with linux text. The keyboard functions correctly with Windows 98,
2000, Redhat and even DOS 5 (Yes, I have a program that requires Windows 3.1)
that my wife uses and I haven't been able to get a good replacement. 

Thank you,

Yes, I've experienced the same problem with my ps2 keyboard 
(makes for a challenging fresh install)
Tried all the install methods as well.

PS: Noticed that it installed a usb mass storage driver.
        Why I don't know.. I don't have one.. just thought
        I'd mention it in the event there might be a relation.

Generic ps2 keyboard
logitech usb mouse

I modified my mouse configuration by putting the PS/2 adapter on my MS USB Wheel
Mouse and plugged it into the mouse PS/2 socket. Everything seems to have worked
as I was able to install the Beta.
